All three of us ordered steaks. The steaks were just the way we had ordered. The idea of choosing two sides is a wonderful idea. The sides were very tasty especially the beetroot and potato salad. The staff were very efficient and friendly. We even...More

Amazing food and hospitality, authentic and relaxed atmosphere with an extensive menu for food and drinks. Since moving to Melbourne, I have gone back to Auckland to eat here, and plan all future trips around when I'll have dinner at Buenos Aires Grill! Yum!

Well worth the walk from the CBD. Classic Argentinean food (steaks, dulche de leche pancakes etc), well cooked in substantial portions at reasonable prices in a pleasant restaurant with friendly staff. What more do you want?

A very different experience with great food. The steaks are awesome and taste great straight from the woodfire grill. The chimichuri dipping sauce is also very good. Highly recommended.

We will return! This was a great meal ... The steaks superb and substantial. Staff friendly and willing to assist. Sat outside with an overhead heater, however it's much warmer inside if weather is cool.

This is definitely one of my favourite restaurants. The owner is friendly, the bbq is always smelling amazing, atmosphere is great, but the best thing is the food. I would recommend the choripan to start (chorizo sausage with bread), and the scotch fillet steak. I...More

Description
We finally opened the new Buenos Aires Restaurant at 234 Jervois Rd, Herne Bay in August 2010, featuring the NZ-first open woodfire grill (worldwide known Argentinean-style "Parrilla", as we call it - the secret to the flavour and tenderness of our meals). While this is a traditional grill in most restaurants in Argentina, this concept took New Zealand by surprise, as during our opening night two Fire Brigade Trucks came over to try to put out the fire! (Of course we invited the firefighters for dinner and had a big laugh about it). The concept of having the Parrilla upfront of the restaurant is to set up a relaxed atmosphere to share with family and friends, and of course, savouring a delicious steak cooked to true "gaucho" style and flavour while enjoying fine and luscious Argentinean or New Zealand red wine.
